Although the location is within the red light district, I think it didn’t bother me too much when I still walking around 12am. Since it’s a red light district, a lot of stores open till very late (some even 24hrs). I had a lot of yummy foodies when in this area, such as ramen and izakaya. This hotel is located between two metro stations which is quite convenient because it’s easily to choose which metro line you want to get on, and it’s closed to the Sakae shopping area.
The bed is comfortable, the room is clean, the blockout curtain is awesome, the shampoo/conditioner, shower gel are good, and you have basic safer and fridge in the room.
Location: the nearest metro stop is Marunouchi Station on the Sakura Line. The hotel is on a quieter inner street parallel to the main avenue, and less than 5 minutes’ walk from Marunouchi Station.This station is only 2 stops from Nagoya railway station. In fact, you can even walk the distance from Nagoya station if the weather is good.
The room was clean on arrival but was warm due to the afternoon sun (not a big issue). Airconditioning was good, so it cooled down fairly quickly. Temperature control was precise through a thermostat.
Wifi was good. Loved the large desk. The room came with a safe, fridge, kettle and sachet of tea. There were 2 power points for charging equipment. There was a wall-mounted TV, but I don’t recall that I ever switched it on, so I cannot say whether it had international news channels. However, it’s not an important checkbox anyway for this price range.
The bathroom was state of the art. Fixtures worked perfectly. Hot water came through quickly, water pressure was good and drainage good. Basic supplies of soap, shampoo, etc were there. Towels were clean and fluffy. Beware the overhead “rainshower” — I personally hate these things. Not realising that there was one overhead, I accidentally turned it on and got a blast of cold water.
Nothing fantastic about breakfast which was mainly a selection of Japanese dishes, but there was bread, jam and margarine too. It’s a buffet so you eat as much as you wish.
Good location with walking distance to metro station, shopping malls, restaurants and convenience stores. Hotel looks new and modern and the room is clean and comfortable. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Overall a nice accommodation.

Yamazaki Mazak Museum of Art is an 8-minute train ride away, while Toyota Commemorative Museum of Industry and Technology is 2 minutes by express train.

A wonderfully located hotel right on top of the Nagoya Station where you have super easy access to Shinkansen trains, subway, department store, and all kinds of shops/restaurants. Subway/Train Stations are all downstairs at the bottom of the hotel. Simply can’t be more convenient than this location!
Hotel itself is massive with huge layout and lots of guest rooms spread out about 40 floors. Upgraded to a room on the high floor – it looks like all guest rooms got a face-lift since my previous stay 2 years ago. Room was bright, clean and very comfortable. Bathroom was well maintained as well. A guest iPad in room is an excellent touch. Also surprising is that hotel moved the Club Lounge to the same floor as Reception and the Lounge is delightfully decorated with an amazing view of the city, absolutely a great place to hang out for drinks, snacks, breakfast and happy hours.
This hotel is located in the upper floors of one of the towers above Nagoya’s main train station (it is one of the ten tallest buildings in Japan), with a great view across the city, and lots of eating and shopping opportunities close by.
The look and feel of the whole hotel was really premium. Loved the Classic European decor of the lobby and elevators. We were on the higher floor in a newly renovated room which was very modern. The room was larger than standard Japanese hotel rooms and bathroom was well equipped. Quality of sleep was excellent with large pillows.
Probably the best location, Quality and Services in Nagoya. Given space constraints in Japan, used to less space. But in Nagoya Marriott despite being right on top of Nagoya station, you feel and enjoy the space in lobby, restaurants, bars and the rooms.
Quality and services are over the top. Japanese Restaurant inside the hotel creates a deco of traditional village and offers one is best Japanese eating experiences. Very authentic fresh Wasabi grinding on shark skin. After dinner drinks at 52nd floor bar overlooking the Nagoya City lights.
We chose this hotel for location and it was really great. It’s within the JR station complex and just across the Meitetsu Bus Complex as well. It’s literally just steps away, not even a block. Everything was available between the JR Tower and JR Gate Tower complex. We took the train in and out of Nagoya and Meitetsu Bus to Nabana No Sato and the outlet.
Rooms were large, although the hotel itself is a bit on the older side. Still quite clean but dated.
The hotel has very good buffets for breakfast. There are two locations where you can choose to go for your breakfast. Either go for the buffet at the concierge or at All Day Dining Pergola. The view of the city from our room was fabulous. Staffs were helpful, professional and friendly. Absolutely will stay again if we are in Nagoya in the future.

he city fathers (and mothers) of Nagoya certainly would not welcome our overall assessment of the neighborhood around Nagoya Station (which is, in fact a conglomeration of the train stations of three rail lines, JR, Kintetsu, and Meitetsu, as well as the hub of all of Nagoya’s mass transit lines). Nagoya Station is a place that all travelers MUST pass through, but it is also a place NOT to stay around for any longer than is absolutely necessary.
The area around Hisaya-Odori Station on the Sakura-dori Subway line, three short stops east of Nagoya Station, where the Vista Nagoya Nishiki is located, is a much more pleasant place to spend one’s time in Nagoya. The “Odori” part of the station name refers to a strip park that runs north-south, with its northern end blending into the grounds of Nagoya Castle and its southern end flanked by Nagoya’s closest approximation to Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills of Via Montenapoleone in Milano. The station is about two blocks’ walk from the Hotel Vista.
The Hotel Vista is small, but very well appointed, and, having been built very recently, everything about the hotel is completely up-to-date and sparkling. Especially notable, as more completely detailed in our review of the Yokohama location, the toilet/bathroom facilities are distributed among three rooms. The convenience makeup, shaving, tooth-brushing sink is in the hallway/alcove of the bedroom; the commode (toilet) has a separate small room all to itself, and of course the plumbing fixture features a modern advanced toilet seat (sometimes referred to as a bidet seat). The bath and shower have a room of their own, and, in fact the entire room is the “shower stall,” because the door to the rest of the suite is gasketed and the floor of the room has an efficient drain, outside of the bathtub.
The bathtub itself is wider and deeper than the typical hotel bathtub, and a low stool and large water scoop are provided outside the tip to facilitate taking a Proper Japanese Bath, in which one thoroughly soaps down and completely rinses outside the bathtub, BEFORE climbing into the filled bathtub for a soak. There is no better way to relax known to our species.
Adjacent to the Vista Hotel is a popular disco/rock nightclub that stays open seemingly all night. The sound sealing of the Hotel Vista is excellent; in three nights’ stay in rooms facing two different sides of the structure, we never had a single note from the nightclub disturb our sleep. Kudos to the architects.
